Dragon

BC0827_3
(45)
$90.11

Five-Ten have undertaken total redesign of the famed Dragon. With its radically down-turned toe, the Five-Ten Dragon is the darling of steep-climbing troglodytes everywhere with a downtruned profile to really dig into foot holds on overhangs. Replacing hook-and-loop closure with laces secures the foot for maximum power through the toe and in heel-hooking. Stealth HF rubber on the outsole is the perfect combination of power and friction for steep climbing, whilst the highly asymmetric last will ensure precision and sensitivity in abundance. A combinaton of a synthetic upper and lined inner means there will be little stretch over time and more comfortable 'from the box' fit, however please bear in mind that these are highly aggressive and asymmetric so they will never be an all day trad shoe.

Details:

- Stealth HF rubber outsole (3.5mm)
- Synthetic upper, no stretch
- Low-profile toe box
- Lace closure system
- Stiffness: Medium
- Last: High asymmetry
- Lined

Suited to:
- Overhangs
- Bouldering

How I choose the correct size?

All climbing shoe models fit differently. We put together our 'shoeculator' to help you find the right size in a new model, compared to your old climbing shoes or street shoes.

Choose from the options below to find your size in the Five-Ten Dragon
Climbing Shoe
or
Street Shoe

This sizing advice is based on two pairs of brand new shoes. Leather shoes tend to stretch more than synthetic shoes. When switching from synthetic to leather you may want to select a smaller size.

Specific strengths, several weaknesses

A good shoe for smearing on steep ground, but I wouldn’t get them again. The heel is quite Narrow and deep and I found it didn’t fit my heel too well, and was insecure on small features as there was air at the bottom. Softness means that on small edges they feel insecure. Normally I downsize a few sizes from street, but I got these at same size as street. The fit was good on my narrow feet, but in hindsight probably would have gone half a size.

My main complaint is with the build quality. I had these shoes for around 5 months before the toes gave out. To be fair I wore them quite hard, but compared to other shoes like the Instinct VSR and Solution I felt the Dragons were far less durable.

Mr.

A fantastic shoe that performs excellently in every situation (e.g. Outdoor/Indoor, overhangs, vertical (edging), and smearing) ! When compared to the previous Dragon this shoe is by far a completely different beast. FiveTeam did a fantastic job and greatly improved the design and the materials of this model. For a long time I have been a LaSportiva fan, but this shoe has definitely earned a spot on my top five list.

Brilliant at edging and have a heel that fits like a glove. I ordered these shoes and read a lot of reviews that said the heel is baggy, I have found that the heel is great and sticks to just about everything (other than ridiculously polished limestone but even then they stuck most of the time). I would 100% buy these shoes again as they are just so good, well done five ten

Great shoes on my 3rd pair and they r just the right shoe for me. There is only one bad thing i could think of which is if you don't get them small enough there is a lot of dead space in the hell and they flatting out over time.

It's my fifth pair of these shoes and they are great. The rubber is super sticky and it just sticks to anything. At first I didn't think hear shoes would be that good on technical verticals climbs, but actually they're great.
There's only one downside and that is that they aren't the comfiest type of climbing shoe. But I mainly do bouldering so it's easy just slip them on and off between climbs.
